Vitamin K biosynthesis and the human gut microbiota.

Karl, James.


  • Abstract: Emerging evidence suggests novel physiologic functions for vitamin K beyond the vitamin's canonical role in hemostasis. Mechanisms underlying these functions are not well characterized, though several are thought to be independent of vitamin K-dependent protein activity and unique to bacterially-synthesized forms of vitamin K known as menaquinones (MKn). Many gut bacteria synthesize MKn,... read more
